    Auckland mayoral candidates have spoken out about shootings across Auckland overnight

    Auckland mayoral candidates have spoken out about shootings across Auckland overnight


    Police responded to call-outs in seven suburbs, believed linked to tensions between the Tribesmen and Killer Beez gangs.

    Restaurateur Leo Molloy suggests it may be time for the police to have a dedicated raptor force, like one in Australia ... set up to disrupt and deal to motorcycle gangs.

    Heart of the City Chief Executive Viv Beck says there needs to be a really a strong, co-ordinated effort by police, council and community organisations.

    Businessman Wayne Brown says he would call senior ministers into his office and tell them they're not leaving until they make progress on the issue.

    ZB is seeking comment from candidate Efeso Collins, a councillor from Manukau - where many of the shootings are taking place.
